Let's Laminate!

Help me give my students the laminated materials they can use in all academic settings as well as with my Cheer team!

My Students

I work in an urban school district where the students are comprised of different backgrounds, nationalities, and languages. I must go through a box of laminating sheets a month! I try to laminate everything so it can be wiped down and used multiple times with the kids. Unfortunately, the laminator I had has finally kicked the bucket after 1,000s of uses. Not only do I use laminated materials for my classroom, but I am coaching middle school cheer and we can laminate so much, for continued use for the squad, hopefully, year after year!

My Project

I have always used laminated materials with the population of students that I work with, at the height of covid and on going, I try to have activities that are easy to clean and less disposable. I have been laminating whole individualized activity sets.

My hope now, is to also use the laminating machine as needed for the cheer squad that I am coaching.

Different cheers can be re-used throughout the season.

A laminating machine is a teacher's dream tool for all aspects of daily classroom life! Help me laminate everything!
